I had a rough week fighting off a scratchy throat, so no time on the mats for me last week. I really wanted to get back to the dojo to see what the results of the tests were, but I was feeling awful and didn't want to spread my germs. I think it was the best decision to stay home and recharge my batteries all weekend.
I'm feeling much better today and am looking forward to training tomorrow evening.
Jordan, you looked great on the mats too. Thanks for that!
Alex, thanks for reading. You're so right, I'm amazed at how the legacy of Toyoda Shihan has spread around the world. To think that one man was able to bring so many people together. I guess shouldn't say "was", I should say "is". He IS able to still bring us all together. Amazing.
Garza Sensei owes me an essay about that seminar. I'll have to get on his back about it! Thanks for sharing the link.
